I tested that, as follows:
powershell -command Get-ChildItem *sh*.*

This works fine, but does not seem to find matching files with no extension. Am I missing something?

Thus, it seems to me that this powershell alternative is more or less equaivalent to the dir alternative:
dir "*sh*.<"

However, the powershell version appears to execute much slower compared to the dir alternative...

For including files with no extension, one could pipe dir with findstr as follows:
dir /B *sh* | findstr /I "sh.*\. ^.[^.]*$"
But then you will only get the filenames listed. Similar regexp functionality is of course also available under powershell.
